The Crisp Galleries
Located along the Hume Highway, the Crisp Galleries are the perfect stopover when visiting Murrumbateman. Start your tour of the grounds with a visit to the gallery, then head to the gift shop where you can find a range of giftware and gourmet food gifts.

The working studio is currently home to the work of Peter Crisp. Amongst his work you will also find the famous Bombay Gin Chalice seen in worldwide advertising, plus the world’s most expensive perfume bottle. The very first experimental pieces can be seen here with one off museum pieces and a range of tableware which Peter has become recognised for around the world.
The Gift Gallery, Glass Gallery and performance space are set in a magical three hectare garden of designed plant themed ‘rooms’ which will interest gardeners one and all. The gardens contain surprises around every bend-created over fifteen years. The Performance Space is also used for functions, concerts and visiting artists.
